About the Author

The Belgian/Flemish author Bob Van Laerhoven debuted in 1977 as a short story writer, and in 1985 as a literary novelist. More than thirty-five novels followed, most of them cross-over between literature and the suspense novel. Van Laerhoven explored-sometimes in association with Médecins sans Frontières-trouble-spots across the globe from 1990 to 2003: Somalia, Liberia, Sudan, Gaza, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, Mozambique, Lebanon, Burundi... To name but a few. During the Bosnian war, he was in besieged Sarajevo, and in 1995 he sneaked into Tuzla when the refugees arrived from the Muslim enclave of Srebrenica. His conversations with them resulted in the book Testimony to a Mass Murder. De wraak van Baudelaire won him the Hercule Poirot Prize for best suspense novel of the year in Belgium. La Vengeance de Baudelaire was published in France and in Canada, followed by Baudelaire's Revenge in the US, and Le Mensonge d'Alejandro in France. Baudelaire's Revenge won the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the category mystery/suspense. In 2015, Dangerous Obsessions, a collection of stories, set in different places all over the world and with war as a background, came out. Dangerous Obsessions was voted best short story collection of 2015 by the San Diego Book Review. Van Laerhoven contributed to Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, the literary magazine Conclave, A Journal of Character, and the UK literary magazine Wasafiri. He is also one of the authors in the 2015 anthology Brussels Noir from Akashic Books (USA).
